Weekly FGO vol. 58

JP

Nothing week. Next update will be a new chapter Lostbelt 5.5 which apparently isn’t actually Lostbelt but singularity. And not an event either so there’s no time limit. I think.

Christmas event will also be coming soon-ish. Maybe in one or two weeks. Not sure if I want to spare time for loot box this time.

NA

Lostbelt chapter 3 is out. I’m going through it slowly. Or maybe not at the moment as I’m farming for Aurora steel instead.

Nothing exciting here either but at least there’s Advent Calendar which if follows last year should provide at least 30 sq.

Christmas event hasn’t been announced but if following JP pattern, it should start next week. I sure hope it’s not the same time as JP.

I may or may not roll for Bradamante. Even if I do it will be 10 rolls at most. Probably.

Weekly FGO vol. 57

JP

The Imaginary Scramble event is done. That sure took a while to finish. At least the currencies farming itself wasn’t too bad.

I didn’t have much time for challenge quest so I just go with easy route:

Not exactly easy at over 25 turns and wrong team composition (alter ego when most of the enemies are knights) but I did clear it in one attempt.

Up next is Lostbelt chapter 5.5. No idea if it’s time limited event or not.

There’s also 2.2M download except there’s no free SR this time. Welp. I hope they still do it sometime later (maybe on the new chapter release?).

NA

Lostbelt chapter 3 has been released. As planned I got Waver to bond 11. Up next will be either Nitocris or Arash. Probably the latter but I generally prefer the former for farming because using Arash is kinda slow.

There’s also the Thanksgiving banner. I rolled for Ishtar 32 times but got that caster above instead. Not that I’m complaining because she’s quite a bit more useful for my team at the moment. Ishtar’s high damage is certainly nice but I also have Jannu summer which is while her damage is not quite as high, she’s still pretty good. The 40% NP charge is a bit lacking compared to Ishtar’s 50% but it should be workable. Hopefully.

Single target high damage caster with NP charge skill will certainly be useful in quite a few situations. I just need to gather enough skill stones and QP for her.

As for the new chapter itself, I don’t plan on doing it anytime soon. The earliest will be once the half AP daily quests campaign is ended which is in three days.

Weekly FGO vol. 56

JP

Still slowly going through the event. The story part seems pretty long. The challenge quest seems to be rather difficult according to people at AppMedia FGO wiki.

There’s nothing else otherwise. There’s no indication of free SR yet. Hopefully they still do it this year in addition to the free SSR earlier this year. Otherwise my Valkyrie is stuck at NP1 ;_;

NA

As per screenshot above, I managed to get another Ereshkigal ( ゚ ヮ゚)

At NP2, she’s quite a bit more powerful. She’s especially useful for this account because I don’t have any Kaleidoscope or MLB Imaginary Magecraft (fourth one in the screenshot above).

My main goal was getting another Taiga beacuse I severely lack good single target lancer until next year’s Kagetora. I did get another one although I wished for at least two for NP3. But I got Ereshkigal instead so that’s even better in a different way.

My roll stats is now a bit weird. Hopefully I can still get my targets next year.

As for the event itself, I’ve almost done just need to do a bit more farming for the gold currency and the sand. The challenge quest was relatively easy brute-forced with Zerklot and double Skadi and finished by Okita. I sure wish my Zerklot is NP2 or higher. Or maybe MLB Black Grail.

Upcoming event is not an event but new main story. I’m not rolling anything here. Dreamfire, the max bond upgrade is very much welcome. I’ll need at least three at the moment for Waver, Arash, and Nitocris. Spartacus is also dangerously close to be maxed.

I only have enough rare prisms for one more dreamfire and the next free RP I can obtain (short of NP6 SR/SSR) will be quite a bit later in April. At least there will be a free one in January so that will do by then.

Weekly FGO vol. 55

JP

The new event has started. It’s got two new SSR servants; one of who has been waited for by lots of people.

I’m not interested in either so I’m not rolling.

The mechanic this time is rather interesting and thankfully simple. Although figuring out the most efficient way to reveal the map may take longer than I would like to so I ended up just opening whatever I feel like to.

As for the farming itself, thanks to me not having many event item bonus CE, I can just equip Imaginary Element to everyone and NP away. It’s already pretty much expected when they announced the damage bonus thing so that’s nice. The only rather annoying thing is at 75%, it’s not quite enough for some servants who only have 20% NP charge.

NA

Free SR arrived. I said last week I may get Valkyrie. But after some (farming) considerations, I ended up getting Lancelot instead. As expected from the double Skadi system (second) main attacker, he’s plenty useful even at NP1.

Altera Santa Christmas rerun has started. It’s got Ereshkigal banner. Also simultaneously, event for FSN HF latest movie is also ongoing with Artoria banner.

I kinda wanted more Salter (NP3 would be nice) so I rolled the Artoria banner. The other SR in the banner, Heracles, is also useful so I figured it’s fine rolling that banner without waiting.

And then as per the image at the top of this post, I got the Artoria herself. Her raw damage is slightly lower compared to Salter (at the moment) but she’s got 30% NP charge which fits nicely with my complete lack of Kaleidoscope and MLB Imaginary Element. Leveling her up is very painful though so I’m thinking saving enough resources first until I can fully level her up at once. At worst she’ll probably be at least max ascended in next year anniversary with the new one-time special ascension function.

After getting getting her with 5 tickets, I felt like wasting some more tickets (total 10 to be precise) so I rolled Ereshkigal banner hoping for Taiga or Ana or event CE. Ereshkigal herself is also pretty useful with 50% NP charge so that would be a nice bonus.

First roll I got Nezha (now NP4) and the second roll I actually got Ereshkigal.

So, yeah, that was weird. Not that I’m complaining. Thankfully I’ve got almost enough materials to fully max her straight away. Just need about 10 mores stakes and a lot of QP. And exp cards as well because I currently have none after trying to max Lancelot last week.

With addition of those two SSRs, my summon rate is now almost in line with the advertised rate:

RarityTypeCountPercentage
RCE46238.44%
RServant48740.52%
SRCE16613.81%
SRServant373.08%
SSRCE383.16%
SSRServant121.00%
Total1202100.00%

As I haven’t gotten my NP2 Valkyrie, my next roll will be next month’s banner… if it comes at all. I noticed there’s chance the WinFes banner may be skipped. Whoops. Oh well, there’s still next year’s anniversary banner. Actually looking at the lineup that one is better than the WinFes one.

With that, my next roll will be, hm, exactly that banner 😀

Or maybe Godjuna… if I feel like rolling. Maybe 10 rolls or something. Miyu would be nice too but NA is more about meta than eyecandy (except for Okita) and Miyu is not quite useful.

Weekly FGO vol. 54

RIP sq

JP

Christmas rerun finished. I did clear the store in the end.

The next event is apparently titled “Imaginary Scramble” and is supposed to happen after LB ch. 4 (India). And I haven’t finished reading that chapter. I probably really should before the event starts. Or something. Maybe I’ll catch up this weekend.

Interestingly the event gives bonus to a lot of summer servants because… sea. It’s almost like a second summer event. Or maybe that’s why this year’s summer is in the mountain. That’s a cool story.

The event itself will be most likely start next week. In the meantime they’re having some pre-event banner… event. The main servant here is You Kihi which is a rather interesting foreigner (and a very annoying one as enemy sometime back then). She’s also gotten buffed together with some other servants.

And the other servant in the banner is MHXX, Raikou summer, and Frankenstein summer. I did some random 22 rolls and gotten one MHXX. As I still had quite a lot of sq leftover I figured how hard can it be getting another MHXX or maybe Raikou if I’m lucky so I can NP2 at least either of them. Well it’s FGO with its crappy rate but at least I did get another MHXX so that’s nice. I’m not sure if I prefer her over Raikou in term of usefulness but she has NP charge skill and it’s always useful. Could be useful against high HP berserker… or saber. Her other skills seem okay and her NP being arts means it could be boosted nicely by Castoria.

Oh and I’ve gotten lots of Imaginary Magecraft CE. I didn’t get enough Imaginary Around though which kinda sucks.

NA

12M downloads campaign has started. It includes the long-awaited Chaldea Teatime (because otherwise I have nothing for my caster CE).

Tickets are bought, fous are as well (though unused). Free SR is coming soon. I’ll probably pick Valkyrie for a nice NP2. Technically I should be getting either Herc or Zerklot. Or maybe even Astolfo. I’ll probably still get Valkyrie in the end.

Almost forgot but there’s also Cu Alter pickup… I wonder if I should roll or save for next year’s Jeanne summer and Okita summer and Merlin and even further Castoria. I also still kinda want Okita Alter and more Okita.

…considering the upcoming ones I may just skip this one. I can borrow one whenever needed anyway which is prett rare to begin with.

Weekly FGO vol. 53

JP

Christmas rerun done! …almost. Still need to do some farming and the extra quests.

I cleared challenge quest with team above since it seemed like an easy idea. And it sure was relatively easy. I think all I did was just spamming NP as many as I can. And thanks to two Castoria, they handled fending off enemy NPs.

NA

Oniland done. I didn’t manage to get 100 aurora steels. I did get enough to final ascend Valkyrie and to max Skadi skills though. So that’s nice.

As for challenge quest, I used the team above. The method is simple, spam NP while protecting the attacker (Rider Kintoki) with Gudaguda Poster Girl. Oh, and Georgios of course.

Rider Kintoki sure is easily the best single target rider for pure firepower with his 50% NP charge, high NP charge rate, and two quick buffs.

Now I’m farming some feathers so I can max Jeanne Summer skills. Afterward it’ll be either more aurora steels or dragon fangs.

Weekly FGO vol. 52

JP

The Gudaguda event ended up giving lots of new expressions for Okita. Yay.

The raid was a bit surprising and got quite a few much needed fangs. Still not quite enough to max out Salter summer though. And as it’s the second most popular node, I didn’t have much else to farm so I ended up hitting random nodes both for event shop currency and some skill gems. Mainly caster skill gems. Didn’t get much though.

As predicted(?) last week, there’s also more building quests. I’ve already gotten enough materials so that was easy.

The challenge quest was rather interesting. I ended up borrowing a high damage lancer (Scathach) paired with Waver to defeat Nobukatsu. And then Okita in the back to finish off Nobbu.

And now instead of Halloween, we’re getting a Christmas rerun instead…? Where’s even Samba rerun.

So, um, yeah. It’s Nightingale Christmas. Apparently I didn’t do much last year. Not even remotely proper challenge quest clearance (I most likely used some command seals). The lottery box is limited to 10 this time as per usual rerun so there’s even less thing to do now.

Maybe I’ll try clearing the challenge quest proper this time.

Also did like 22 rolls for the Astolfo saber and got zilch. Not even SR/SSR event CE.

NA

Oniland! Finally a single target caster. Although technically the role can be fulfilled by either Mech Eli or Jalter summer, a proper caster is sometimes useful especially for the half damage.

At any rate, going through the event rather quickly this time. By quickly I mean 5 turns farming because I use full event CE (hence quick) which means I need to fill up NP on the first wave. Now at 1.2M points I’m pretty close at maxing the damage and it sure is a lot of damage.

There will be raid coming soon so that will be fun. I don’t remember how it goes but it drops Aurora Steel. I need a lot of steels. Almost 100 of them. I hope I can collect enough from this single raid.

Weekly FGO vol. 51

JP

Suddenly more Gudaguda. Complete with raid. It’s over in about two days though so that was short.

Also suddenly more Okita costume. Now with ponytail and hakama. That’s nice although I’d prefer a completely new art rather that just variation of existing one.

The second/extra part of the event is coming later today. I hope it’ll involve building more craps.

On semi-related note, I managed to get NP2 Okita on my sub account on my 110th roll. Nice.

Also nice I got Himiko on my 12th roll. I mainly wanted CE (and got none) and planned for 22 rolls but this is better, I guess.

Timing-wise, it doesn’t look like we’ll get Space Ishtar rerun this year? Either that or they’re pushing main “Halloween” event to next month.

Or maybe this Gudaguda will end up as Halloween. Unlikely, I’d say.

NA

Event done! With Cu and Skadi for Challenge Quest as I mentioned last week.

There’s supposed to be new Interludes before Oniland but it’s not yet announced. Cu Alter is rather interesting but I’m still saving my SQ for next year summer (Okita and Merlin).

In the meantime I’m farming for some mats so I can finish leveling up skills (and base level) for servants with NP charge. I also need some more QPs.

Weekly FGO vol. 50

JP

And sure enough I didn’t reach 100 boxes. Welp.

Then for some reason the dev thought it’s good idea to have hunting quest right after box gacha event.

Some were pretty useful like octuplets, aurora steel, chains, and spinal fluid. Especially the last one I need a lot of them.

That said, the immediate thing I need is actually dragon fang which didn’t make it this time. I need at least 177 of them because Salter summer takes that many for maxing her skills. I also need a lot of seeds.

Now I’m looking at it, I’m not sure why I’m farming for dusts and proofs.

New event later today. Most likely a rerun?

On unrelated note, I tried NP2-ing Okita on my sub account but she still hasn’t come after over 100 rolls. Combined with Castoria fail, it’s been over 350 rolls since my last SSR servant on that account.

NA

Mech Eli rerun wheee.

As expected, farming is slow but at least it’s efficient? I’ve just finished all the missions and all that’s left is clearing the shop and challenge quest.

I wondered how I did challenge quest last time… and I didn’t. I haven’t finished Solomon at the time it seems.

I think I cleared it on my JP account using low rarity servants. It was probably the usual taunt team with Cu as main attacker.

Up next is Oniland. That one will provide my much-needed aurora steel. Apparently it’s got raid quest as well which should be hopefully relatively easy with Cu and Skadi.

The event is probably overall relatively easy as well considering I did it twice at simultaneously on both JP accounts in 2018.

Weekly FGO vol. 49

JP

I’m 10 boxes short from 100 boxes. I don’t think I’ll be able to hit 100. Oh well.

Next event is still not announced. Maybe Space Ishtar rerun? That may drive people crazy trying to get her to complement Castoria.

Lack of exhibition quest this time is still a bit unfortunate.

NA

Third time exhibition quests for me means I’ve got quite some hang of it. Or just back record on how I cleared them.

For my own reference next year, here’s some details on how I did each of them.

Touta

The easiest one. Can be completed with solo Cu origin. Or solo Kagetora as I did last year.

Leonidas

Unfortunately I don’t really remember how I cleared this one. I think it was Nitocris, Mash, and Waver in the front? And then Georgios, Avicebron, and Cu Alter on the back? Maybe. Something around killing as many henchmen as possible with Nitocris NP.

Izo

Uh, here I introduce the taunt wall team.

This isn’t the exact team but it’s pretty close. I think. Maybe replace Georgios and Kintoki with Leonidas and Caster attacker or something. Or maybe it was Mech Eli? Anyone who can deal enough damage to assassin.

Jaguarman

This used to be pretty difficult for me in JP. But that was with low rarity (+Okita, etc) restriction. There’s no such restriction here so the team similar to one in Izo is back. Now with Okita because lancer and berserker. In hindsight it’s good thing I brought her otherwise Cu can’t quite defeat Nobbu with his buster card and NP.

Surprisingly I cleared this in one go. The experience in JP paid off.

Sheba

I think I failed this first time due to not paying attention to the gimmicks. Second run with Kintoki, Mash, and Merlin (I think?) allowed me to clear this one. Nothing much on strategy apart of just paying off all the loans and properly do it mainly for the attacker.

MHXA

This one was fun. With idea from this video, I did it with my own spin.

The team is Skadi, Cu origin, and Cu alter on the front and Avicebron, Waver, and Cu caster (I think?). Plugsuit was employed so I can break the first bar on first turn. Gandr was used so I can properly get rid of that DX spriggan which grants MHXA buff removal on normal attacks.

That one costed Cu alter HP drop to 1. In the end all the arrow protections held up.

Looking again, I should’ve also tried getting rid of Sleepy Mochi which granted full recovery. That should reduce number of turns required. At 900k HP I’m not sure if it’s actually doable though.

Finale

So that team in Izo section is actually for this one. And it worked so well because of how Nero just keep spamming her NP every time someone is defeated. The strategy pretty much boils down to taunt all the time, maybe with flee/invulns. Billy and Nero are put off until last moment.

And that’s it!

The event has ended as well and my final box count is at 72. Not too bad but still not enough caster skill gems to bring everyone to at least skill level 4.

I managed to max up Okita, 8/8/8 Valkyrie, 6/10/7 Janne Summer, 1/6/10 Anastasia, and various other useful skill level ups. Due to lack of Aurora Steel I still can’t max up Skadi but I’ve got enough dusts remaining so all that’s left is just those steels. And lore. I only have one lore remaining.

As for level and ascensions, there are still lots of servants to be leveled up. I do have quite a lot of bones and proof of hero but I may have better use of them so I’m holding back spending them on random servants.

Lastly, it’s now Mech Eli rerun and 3T farming is rather difficult. At least clearing the missions should be easy now with all events CE maxed from the start.

Weekly FGO vol. 48

JP

Grinddddddd. Or something. But yeah, it’s grind time. I’m currently at around 70 boxes or something. I guess I’ll trying hitting 100 boxes by the end of this event.

The Grail Front thingy ended up still rather stupid. The AI is especially dumb.

NA

I really need to finish the exhibition quests. I finished most of them but at least two still remains. Those aren’t especially difficult but it still takes time. Potentially a lot of them.

The grinding situation is a bit annoying with farming for gold currency being pretty difficult. I should be able to finish it by end of today and then full speed farming for the tickets. Currently at around 60 boxes, I’m not sure if I can hit 100 for this one.

Weekly FGO vol. 47

What is this nonsense

JP

Lottery box event is suddenly here. No challenge quest this time but we get this weird tactical game instead. I guess you could play it “proper” with multiple servants going together and buff each other and stuff but I learned that the easiest way is just to send off Heracles and let him do his thing. The third skill power up he has just gotten recently especially helped; allowing him to one-turn everyone.

The box themselves is, well, box farming as usual. Thankfully the last map also doubles as farming for all shop materials so I’ve been doing that and slowly clearing up the shop. I don’t even need any event CE other than the lottery bonus.

NA

Lottery box here as well. I’m also slowly going through the challenge quests. I’m in way more better shape compared to last year so I should be able to clear everything… I think.

Unlike JP, there’s no good node to farm everything at once so I’m currently farming the bronze item first. Or just started after sticking around at the lottery ticket node non stop for the first few days.

Thanks to all the box items, my servant upgrades sure are going smoothly.

Weekly FGO vol. 46

Still the fastest way to farm hands and doors

JP

Finished challenge quest in lazy mode with help of friend Abigail summer. And Merlin (and Mash). It took 25 turns but could’ve been faster had I not been focusing too much on Bunyan.

It’s 21M download campaign after summer event and still ongoing until tomorrow. So I’ve been clearing strengthening quests and just farming hands. Not that I need many exp cards anymore so the extras will just become mana prisms.

Timing wise, Gil fest should be coming up next but there’s usually a rerun of something in between. The timing will be pretty difficult though. We’ll find out soon.

NA

Finally cleared F/Z rerun. Farming the nodes were pretty annoying so I ended up not buying the monuments and pieces. I did clear the other mats though.

The challenge quest wasn’t the first for me but I’ve forgot the gimmick etc. I cleared it first run thanks to friend Cu Alter. First bar of both were pretty easy but it gets really annoying once the permanent and frequent def buffs for Diarmuid activates. I didn’t bring any buff clearer either so it got pretty slow at that point. Thankfully Cu Alter just rip through everything once he’s the remaining servant on the field.

Now I’m preparing for Gil fest… kind of. I think I need to at least bring Skadi skill 1 to level 10 for 10/7/10. And maybe Atalante’s skill 1 to 10 as well.

Now I wrote it, I realized I haven’t prepared anything for the exhibition quests. My overall lineup is better compared to my main JP and I’m not restricting anything for this account so it should be easier. I hope.

Weekly FGO vol. 44

JP

Still slowly going through the story. I’ve been a bit busy with other stuff so I’ve even been farming QP instead of event mats as I’ve cleared most of the shop.

Interestingly they released older Mashu summer costume in Rare Prism shop. I bought that as I’ve got quite a few extra RPs.

Otherwise nothing too exciting. I heard the challenge quest this time isn’t too difficult either. That should work out just fine for me as as I’ve mentioned above, I’m rather busy with other stuff at the moment.

NA

It’s been half AP exp card farming week. Next week is Fate/Zero collab event rerun. It’s one of the older event and the CEs used aren’t of limited time. I’ve got some of them so farming shouldn’t be too bad.

I still don’t have Angra Mainyu though. I cleared up my friend points last week and got nothing.

I originally planned to roll for Waver on this event but I got him unexpectedly early few months ago so there’s nothing I really need at this event’s banner although Lancelot would be nice. But then again I don’t have Kaleidoscope so he won’t be as useful anyway and NP1 Lancelot can’t quite deal enough damages in some cases.

I’m still recovering from my roll for Salter summer (and Jannu summer) so my SQ situation isn’t exactly good at the moment anyway. The 10 ticket coming up soon is nice but I need to save for Okita (and Musashi) next summer. Oh, and Merlin.

Weekly FGO vol. 43

JP

It’s summer! It’s camping time! Or something. Now I think about it, first one wasn’t even really limited to sea but a whole island. Second one… I’m not even sure if there’s sea element at all. First part was like various places and second part was just prison area. Third one is the closest one being sea-themed but just like first one it was also a whole island which has mountain as well. And lastly last year was… Las Vegas. It’s fucking desert.

I guess they’ve never done exclusively sea-themed to begin with!

This one though is pretty much just mountain. It’s got lake but that’s about it.

Also it’s got Illya summer which I thankfully was able to get with limited amount of stones.

Still going slowly through the quests. Weirdly enough I’m almost done with the store even though I’m barely halfway through the story.

Meanwhile on my old account, I’ve been trying to get Castoria. A bit over 300 rolls and she hasn’t appeared at all ;_; Not only that, I haven’t even gotten any SSR servant at all. The probability for that to happen is 5% which is kinda ridiculous. There’s still one last day but I’m not holding my breath. I’ll just get over with it and try again next time =[

NA

Meanwhile in NA, summer is over. I cleared the whole store just in time. Oh, I said I’m not rolling anything but that was a lie. I did end up rolling for Jeanne summer.

And unlike my old JP account, thankfully I got her in 23 rolls.

While she isn’t all that useful for now, she should be pretty useful once Castoria comes out… in two years…

And I still don’t have Lancelot. I haven’t gotten Kaleidoscope either. I can’t use my Skadi in full ;_; Considering I won’t pull for anything until next summer, this will be a rather annoying year. At least Skadi and Waver together make good NP charger.

Coming next (after the 11M download) would be Fate/Zero collab rerun. I still haven’t gotten Angra Mainyu…

Weekly FGO vol. 41

JP

5th anniversary events have started trickling in. The Memorial Quests so far are quite easy.

The strengthening quests are pretty interesting too with Phantom getting a long overdue buff. It’s almost copy-pasted from Alexander but almost better if not for only 90% maximum chance. It sure would be nice if they increase the rate as well but he’s got the debuff rate buff so maybe it’s fine. There’s nothing more to it though so his usefulness is still rather questionable.

Darius buff is pretty good one though. While not buff, buster def down for enemies is pretty close. This also brought him even further from Kiyohime who is already underpowered.

The last one from yesterday was David and he finally got his anti-giant damage boost. His skill set is already plenty good so this just makes him slightly more useful.

There’s only one low rarity servant buff remaining and I heard it’ll be more buff for Cu OG. That doesn’t sound quite right because he already has his NP buff and his skill set is pretty much overpowered. A buff for Cu proto instead would be welcome.

As for the rest higher rarity servants, I so far don’t have any of them, lol. I don’t usually use them either so I don’t know how much improvements they are. The Gubijin buff of buff removal resistance seems to be the most useful.

The CE banner is just weird so I’m skipping it.

Next update will probably be after their live stream on Monday. The timing is pretty annoying because while it’s holiday, it’s also the last long weekend day which means there isn’t much time to fully enjoy whatever updates they put out. Especially if they also start summer event simultaneously – then it’ll be a pretty big update to digest.

NA

As I mentioned in a post earlier, I managed to get Salter summer during last day of her banner. That was nice. I also cleared the events barely on time.

Summer Fes has started and I mentioned earlier I don’t have spare gems/tickets at the moment so I only did single pull of Jeanne banner and got Fuuma. It was pretty much expected to miss.I wonder if I should try Dantes banner as well. Maybe I’ll do just one. Rolls as typing this… and the result is… Alexander. Ha ha ha 😐

Anyway! My current progress for the event itself is one sixth purely from the doujin power perspective. It should be pretty accurate. I don’t remember the most efficient way to clear this so for now I’m clearing the currency store first. I still need 1800 Gil dollars and over 3000 of the other two dollars. This will take a while but the event will be up for another two weeks. There should be enough time to clear everything.

Weekly FGO vol. 40

Would’ve been gacha of despair if not for this

JP

Finished the event! I didn’t want to bother thinking for challenge quest so I cleared it with command seals.

I also got this rather useless servant to NP5. That sure is something. If only he appears on my NA account instead.

Current event won’t end until next week but apart of a bit of farming I’m mostly done with it. Will be back to farming green cubes, I guess.

NA

Summer 2019 Rerun! Salter summer pickup! Chance for NP2! Except I didn’t get her. I did 180 rolls and the only SR or above servants I got were three copies of Helena summer. She’s pretty useful as I still don’t have Kaleidoscope but an actual Kaleidoscope sure would be nice. And Salter summer.

With that, I emptied my SQ and tickets. I guess I won’t be rolling for Edmond. Or Jannu summer. Or anyone. Until next year for Okita summer. Hopefully I will gather enough fund by then.

Meanwhile on the event itself, I’ve finished the main story and challenge quests. First part, as I mentioned last week, I used command seals but for the second part I finished it without. Shiki and Jannu sure can go a long way.

I’m still rather far behind on farming but the event is ending soon. It looks like I’ll be mostly farming for this event this weekend.

Weekly FGO vol. 39

JP

CCC done. I did finish it with the least amount of effort. Apparently the repeatable last quest can be repeated indefinitely by unlocking it with rare prism?

Ooku has started and it’s a lot of no-battle quests. Thankfully they fixed the loading screen problem.

As for Anniversary and Summer announcements, it looks like we’ll be getting early info on Famitsu just like last few years.

At any rate, August 10th will be the start of either Summer or Anniversary event. Or both.

NA

Part 2 starts today. I think. The nice thing about this event is it’s twice the store and thus fous. Also nice the CEs are mostly shared.

On semi-related note, I finished the first challenge quest with some help of command seals.

I’m not sure what to do with Salter Maid banner yet.

Weekly FGO vol. 38

JP

Hunting week has ended. The drops were pretty useful on all days for once.

And then now… CCC rerun…

I already have BB so it’ll be just mainly for the rare prism and lore. It’s only a week though.

NA

Summer rerun! Maid Salter! Starts this Friday. I can finally MLB my Dive to Blue.

Once done, we’ll probably go straight to ServaFes. Maybe with one week break.

I hope the farming won’t be too bad. I’m running low on Apples ;_;

Weekly FGO vol. 37

That took a while

JP

Still nothing much. There’s a rather weird mixed bag banner which nobody should pull from and then hunting quests.

No bones this time but I also need fangs so that’s nice-ish. Didn’t get enough of that. And then the second one today is ammos. I also can use them especially as Santa Nightingale requires 180 of them for skill level upgrade to 9.

There might be another event before anniversary? Or maybe not? No idea.

Anniversary! GSSR! Fous and stuff! Also, Skadi.

Pulled Caster GSSR because I can use Merlin or Illya or Sanzang. I didn’t get either but instead an Anastasia. She’s pretty good but 50% NP charger with area NP servant isn’t exactly rare for Caster. Helena and Nitocris, both NP2, sure are some nice bonus though.

After some terrible SSR pulls, I got her with 4 tickets. That was weird. I’m not complaining though.

That said, I don’t have that many quick servants. Not even Zerklot. There’s Edmond banner coming up next month but I’m not sure if I want to. Considering I’ll need NP2 to make him efficient enough it’ll be rather useless. I may pull the main swimsuit banners instead for about 10 rolls. Twice. Once for Salter, another one for Jeanne.

I cleared memorial quests… kind of. Used command seal for the last one. It was the first time I do the quest ever. I may come back later or something.

I also finished LB2 and finally got enough grails for level 100 Okita.

Still no interesting screenshot so here’s servant list of my freshly made test account

JP

I’ve cleared the event shop without using apples. Now all that’s left is clearing the quests and main story which are still locked.

NA

Barely finished the event in time.

Up next is… Gutterdam? Followed by anniversary? Skadi is coming but I barely have any sq.

Weekly FGO vol. 33

No particularly interesting screenshot this week so here’s my current SSR lineup on main JP account

JP

Suddenly summer rerun. I’ve got all the CEs I’ll ever need for this event so I’m doing this slowly by loading everyone with event CE and do the many turns farming instead of aiming for 3 turns as usual.

This results in slow but efficient farming in term of clearing the shop. I’ll swap them out once I clear everything out including some of the monuments because I’m running low on some of them.

NA

Meanwhile here, I barely have any event CE so I’m farming rather slowly here. I still don’t have Kaleidoscope so it’ll be slow regardless.

I’ve finished the main story and now grinding for the extra arc.

Still quite a lot of items in the shop as well and it’s not going to be finished anytime soon. I hope I have enough time for this with less than one week remaining…

Done with the event! Mostly.

Cleared the challenge quest in lazy mode with Salter, Merlin, and Waver. That was rather easy. Not sure how I’d do it with low rarity considering it involves nuking out the mobs (which is different class), and depending on the arrangement, may also involve surviving insta-death from Erice’s NP. And full calculation of HP etc if trying with lower rarity. I ain’t got no time for that.

I also tried pulling Voyager as apparently he’s quite good for farming. Except of course I didn’t get any with just 22 rolls.

I did get him on my older account in just 6 rolls though so that’s annoying. I hope I didn’t just waste all my luck on that pull.

Oh, and, yeah, I grailed Erice up to 90 because I have some extra grails and I don’t really have anyone to give them to. I probably should’ve given them to Spartacus or Arash but hey, Elice is cute, so, yay 🤷‍♀️

NA

Gudaguda Final has started. I did 10 rolls for Okita Alter. Then I got nothing. Not even SR anything. Shit luck as usual, I guess.

Back to farming, still of course farming while clearing the missions.

Weekly FGO vol. 31

JP

Fate/Requiem event. The dice rolling game is kind of interesting? It doesn’t really do anything apart of making it difficult entering nodes though lol.

Didn’t roll for anything because the best one is the welfare.

Almost done with the story. Still need to actually finish it though. One last chapter.

I checked the challenge quest and I’m not sure how difficult it’ll be. At least the main enemy is lancer which means at worst I can try using Okita.

NA

Hunting… quest…

I didn’t have enough grail for Okita though so she’s currently stuck at level 96 😔

Next event is Gudaguda featuring Okita Alter! I don’t have much SQ left though and I think Skadi takes priority at the moment. Maybe I’ll try just 10 pulls. Hopefully that’ll be enough (lol).

Weekly FGO vol. 29

JP

I didn’t want to think too much on challenge quest so I cleared it with all the ☆5 supports and my Okita 😎

I ended up scraping for SQ during the last Okita Alter banner but still no NP3. In the end I did 51 rolls.

I finished Shimousa along the way though so that’s nice. I can finally upgrade Fuuma’s NP.

No new event in sight yet.

NA

Okita banner! 216 rolls total for two Okitas. Yay? Or more like 432 if counting my previous failed rolls. That almost rivals my 300 rolls for single Merlin. And still hasn’t topped my 484 rolls for a single Musashi Summer (although I didn’t really aim for her at the time).

I also got Arjuna along the way. And a bunch of ☆4 servants. Annoying there’s still no Kaleidoscope. I got one Imaginary Element but I still need two more to limit break it.

It looks like I’ll be relying on (double) Waver or Arash or Nitocris for the foreseeable future.

Current plan is still more or less the same: 10 pulls for each event if there’s anyone interesting, and save the rest for Skadi and Okita Summer. And maybe Okita Alter.

As I got curious if there will even be anyone interesting until Skadi (apart of Valkyrie), I did a quick check and there’s Okita Alter (and Izo) and Salter Summer it seems? I’m not even sure how many SQ I can gather until then considering I’m currently at 0.

I do have 91 paid SQ but I’ll be saving them for next 3 years of GSSR. Assuming I’ll still play this until 2023. Or if the game still even exist.

As for the event itself, I’m almost done, just need to do last few farming. The challenge quest for this one is relatively easy thanks to all the event CE’s bonus damages.

Weekly FGO vol. 28

I actually almost forgot about this post. At least there should be some more content in few days.

JP

Apparently I managed to get a single copy of Jalter as screenshotted above. It took me 68 rolls to get her. I did another 53 but got nothing.

With Gudaguda Final rerun’s Okita Alter, I did some more rolls with whatever tickets and gems I have left and managed to get no Okita. At least I got two more Nagayoshi so he’s NP3 now.

I sure could use NP3 Okita Alter but oh well.

On the event itself, I think I’m halfway done farming. And as the extra events are just unlocked today, those are still ongoing as well. There’s about one week remaining so it shouldn’t be too difficult.

I’m not sure about the challenge quest though. I think I did clear it last time with low rarity servants but I sure don’t remember how. I hope I left some screenshots I can refer so I don’t need to find it out again.

Oh, and I cleared Olympus during the 0 AP campaign. It sure was annoying in a lot of ways. Haven’t read the story though as I’m backlogged as far back as Yuga.

NA

Oh right, there was Apocrypha event two weeks ago. With the power of Spartacus and double Waver, the challenge quest sure was easy.

I also grailed him to 80 as can be seen halfway in the screenshot above. I’ll probably get him to 90 as well here. Or maybe 100 🤔 He’s generally useful with good skills and NP, just lacking in stats because of 1☆.

Meanwhile, it’s Gudaguda Meiji Restoration here. They skipped the Holmes event for reasons (apparently they just don’t do real life collab events?). That means no NP upgrade of Taiga or Bedivere for now.

Okita banner should be coming next Thursday I think? It’d be pretty annoying if they skip Okita banner as that’s her last banner even in JP. I have 488 sq and 13 tickets which amount to 175 rolls. Combined with my previous failure with 216 rolls, I sure hope those will be enough to get at least one.

Free SSR for 20M download campaign sure wasn’t expected. Waver is in the roster so most people who want to have easier farming time and don’t have him already will probably pick him.

I got one myself as well. Now I’m only missing Skadi for support with NP charge. Pictured above is my older account which has Waver (and Skadi) already I got more Mordred instead. Blue Saber is useful as well but NP2 SSR seems better.

With this, both my JP and NA accounts have Waver. In same month \o/ April was Waver month.

There’s still no hint of next event…

And lastly, I need to remember finishing Olympus during this 0 AP story campaign.

NA

Apocrypha event is still ongoing. Main story should be ending soon, I think? I’ve emptied the store and the remaining raids don’t have that good of drops so I’ve most stopped, only doing raids when the AP naturally recharged.

I’m still lacking a lot of mats but I think I’ll save my apples for better raid or box events.

Also, it’s May! Which means Okita banner is coming soon. Or not so soon as it’s still at least three weeks away. I’ll have about 150 rolls for her. Hopefully that’ll be enough for at least NP1. NP2 sure would be nice.

Skadi and Okita Alter are coming soon as well. I’ll probably do 10 rolls for Okita Alter and Valkyrie then save the rest for Skadi. Assuming I have anything left after Okita banner, that is.

Weekly FGO vol. 26

Previous event farming

JP

Amazingly still nothing. There will be a special livestream later today so there may be a rerun of something. El Melloi collab event rerun perhaps? That would mean Waver gacha time. Or maybe Kama? We’ll find out in 18 hours.

NA

Apocrypha event has started. Unfortunately the berserker I prepared can barely manage deal enough damage. Maybe enough with LB’d event CE? It’ll still be a while until I gather enough points for it.

No particular servant I want on rate-up so I’ll be skipping that. Still hoping for NP2+ Okita next month ;-; (currently at 450-ish SQ)

Weekly FGO vol. 25

JP

There’s… nothing I can remember of for this week. All I did was just farming for mana prisms as usual.

NA

Journey to the west is ending soon. I finished all the quests, only need to farm.

The challenge quest was not too bad. Mainly thanks to it’s only against single servant.

As for the roll for Waver, thankfully I got one. Not in 20 rolls as I mentioned last week though. It took me 91 rolls total. Thankfully I got two Nezha and two Wu Zetian in the process. No Kaleidoscope though.

I guess with this I’m ready for the Apocrypha raid event. Mostly.
